Considering we’re all about to face extra expenses associated with summer travel, back-to-school and the upcoming holiday season, now is a great time to read up on personal finance best practices,” said Casey Bond, editor-in-chief of GOBankingRates. “Our guide to the best personal finance books includes experts from all corners of the industry. We wanted to make it easy for Americans to be entertained, improve their financial well-being and do so while sitting poolside.”
